Families can have more ways than ever before to travel the world with Disney, thanks to an expanded lineup of Short Escape vacations with Adventures by Disney.
In addition to their portfolio of over 50 global vacations, Adventures by Disney will now take travelers to three new international cities on new itineraries in Boston, London, and Vancouver, Canada.
Short Escapes are two- to four-night journeys that can be booked as stand-alone vacations or as add-ons to other plans. These itineraries feature visits to attractions, hands-on activities, and include the services of two knowledgable Disney-trained Adventure Guides to see the experience through from start to finish.
Best of Boston – Past and Present
Celebrate American history and contemporary culture with experiences in Boston on this new four-day, three-night Short Escape.
During the trip, guests will be immersed in the city’s stories. This itinerary includes a privately-guided tour along the Freedom Trail, a private after-hours tour of the Old North Church, and another special after-hours visit to the Boston Team Party Ships & Museum – with a private dinner!
Other family-friendly activities include rowing along the Charles River, exploring the grounds of Harvard Yard, biking the city on a private sightseeing tour, and taking in a private New England clambake on Thompson Island.
This new Short Escape is available on select days from May – October 2019.
Bucket List Getaway in London
Get the royal treatment with this new three-day, two-night Short Escape to one of the world’s most iconic cities. This can be booked as a stand-alone vacation, or as a pre-cruise add-on to Disney Cruise Line sailings out of Dover, England.
The itinerary includes various experiences, including a once-in-a-lifetime private viewing of the Royal Crown Jewels led by the Tower of London’s Jewel House Warden; a high-speed boat ride along the River Thames; and a privately-guided tour of Westminster Abbey, the site of royal coronations and weddings.
